20160612_145137Each reel we receive will be completely disassembled. Parts are soaked in a strong solvent which help break up all the grit and grime that has built up in your reel. We will then hand clean and inspect each reel part. Then we will grease/lube the correct parts as it is reassembled. Each reel is tested to provide you with reliable equipment.  If any parts are needed because they are worn, broken or missing, Tom will contact you and advise of any cost if over $5 per reel. Prices listed are charged for each reel received and are for repair and cleaning only. They do not include parts, taxes, credit card fees, shipping and/or handling fees.

We carry many parts in stock. Click HERE to access the The Reel People Service Request Form. Please print, complete and mail us a form for each reel you are shipping.

If you send us a reel that is un-assembled, there is an additional $5 fee if it can be reassembled. We also charge a $10 fee to even look at the reel for Tom’s time and effort. If it cannot be fixed or if there are any additional fees involved, Tom will call you to discuss.


We request you use a mail service that has tracking for your shipment. We use USPS Priority Mail. First class mail is good but sometimes a reel or two gets lost in shipment. We are not responsible for items lost or damaged during shipping.

Note: We are running two to three months out right now.                                                            Sometimes longer if we are waiting on parts from the                                                                    manufacturer.
